Songs at the Center

Season 4, Episode 5 of 13

Artist: Master Series with Grammy winner Marc Cohn. MARC COHN shares fascinating stories about his creative process. After winning a Grammy Award for his soulful, iconic ballad, "Walking in Memphis," Marc has solidified his place as one of this generation's most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tune smith with the passion of a great soul man. He's a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. TIME magazine calls Marc "one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade" and Bonnie Raitt declared, "Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he's an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for." She, along with James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn's records for Atlantic. In 2016, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debut album, Marc proudly released Careful What you Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities and the bonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demos dating back to years before his debut and the Grammy that followed.
